Hi, I'm Tina and excited to be a Guest Designer this month​.

I'm a mom to 4 boys, so there's never a dull moment in my house.  I've always been surrounded by crafty people in my family (it's a big family), so my hands love to stay busy.  If it's not crafting, it's cooking or gardening that I enjoy doing.  I've been making cards for 14 years now, started in a Calligraphy group, then later on, I got into stamps.  I love to learn and try new things out, so I'm hoping to inspire you to do the same.

I used molding paste, stencils, tissue paper, inks and paints to create the background. Embellishments were also painted, inked, and sprayed to created harmony.
I had fun with this little canvas, it was complete and total play time for me, and I really like the end result. I threw so many different thin layers of mediums on it, I'm not sure I will remember them all pop over to my blog and see how many I do remember.
Belle Papillon Stamp Set

Jan For my tag I used Polkadoodles stamp set that I heat embossed I then used watercolour paints .For the background I used Distress Oxides. I love making tags so simple yet you can add so much

Terry,  Hey there crafters out there, I made a card for you this time, for your inspiration. I have worked on the background with lots of distress inks, mixed them all together to create these colors. Than I could use my Stampplatform for the very first time, I must say a Stamp platform is such a handy tool to use when you are creating WITH stamps, just fabulous. So I have created these flowers with the fabulous stampset  Regal Peacock and Bella Fleur. And I have colored the flowers and the Moth with Distress Oxide inks, on top I have worked with the Glitter Shake Markers, they work wonders on your stamps....The background was finished with a Sentiment and those cute little leaves. Wanna see more, than I suggest you come over to my blog and check it out.

Julia here, I Altered this watering can. First I primed with Gesso. I then used the gorgeous stamp sets, Blossom, Dotty about Flowers & Heavenly Bluebells & stamped onto rice paper. I then coloured using Ecoline pens & adhered it using a decoupage medium. Used a metallic finish paint for the rest of the can, & then added some string & created a little flower using stone paper.
